A history of women at the University of Tokyo
Last updated: 19 March 2022
In 1946, the University of Tokyo first opened its doors to female students. 75 years later, in 2021 women undergrads passed the 21% mark for the first time. What happened during the years in between, and before? And who were the men and women who shaped that change? To take stock of how far we have come, and to reflect on what the future holds for the women of UTokyo, we have conducted research on the history of women at UTokyo.
